    active IP, but it jsut returns 0.

    The index is the key, but how do you enumerate the valid range of the index? If you exceed its valid range, you get a bunch of nonvalid IP addresses, and then a Gerneral Protection Fault.

    For example, in my machine right now I have two ethernet cards.

    If I run this code:

    FOR Index& = 1 TO 10
    HOST ADDR (Index&) TO Temp
    IF ERR THEN GOTO Outloop
    #DEBUG PRINT IpToString(Temp)
    NEXT Index&
    Outloop:


    I trigger a General Protection Fault when Index&=6.

    The DEBUG window displays

    24.13.211.16
    192.168.0.1
    107.98.46.110
    101.46.109.101
    100.105.97.111

    The first two IP addressess (24.13.211.16, 192.168.0.1) are correct. That last 3 are junk. If I have no prior knowledge of how many IP addresses the machine should have, how can I ascertain the valid range for Index& ?

    The HOST ADDR command is capable of retrieving multiple addresses with an index passed after it.

    Try This...

    Code:
    For x& = 0 TO 2
       Host Addr(x&) "" To y&(x&)
       MessageBox "Address " & Format$(x&) & " is " & IpToString(y&(x&))
    Next x&
    Each Idex used after HOST ADDR will retrieve each devices IP address on a given computer.

    Hope this helps.

    started a topic Retrieving IP Address

    Retrieving IP Address

    Okay in PB 6.0 it says to retreive your own IP address use:

    Code:
    HOST ADDR "" TO ip&
    Which works fine, but the problem is it doesn't retrieve the
    right IP address. I have a DSL connection and for some reason
    it retreives the IP for my Ethernet card and not the IP for
    my service. Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone
    know how to get the IP of your connection and not of the
    Ethernet card.

    Please help!
